He was in a lighted area off the highway near area where they were doing work on the road. Dont you agree that I should have quickly accelerated
to let ambulance by?

Yes..

It states 77 in a 55 at 750 ft but it is also checked as ESTIMATED ?on my
citation.

The estimated part doesn't really make sense, unless the distance was estimated. Lidar doesn't estimate, it calculates so I suspect his speed is accurate (sorry to be the bearer of bad news).

How does accelerating allow the ambulance to pass by, as opposed to merely pulling over to the other lane or shoulder, or was there a vehicle or other obstruction preventing you from doing so?

I had to briefly speed up a bit because the ambulance was going very fast
and once I went over to the right lane I immediately slowed down a bit and
them proceeded to go back in my original lane. This all took 20 seconds.

Also, the trooper was perpendicular to my vehicle ( the right side) when the
ambulance passed me.

Did you explain the cirumstance to the officer at the time? Obviously, the ambulance had to have been seen at the time.

What the officer's response?
